The Box, at Penrith in Cumbria, is an ultra-modern, purpose-built headquarters and manufacturing hub for AST Signs, one of the UK’s leading branding companies. The construction of this project has provided AST Signs with an innovative space that is now used to centralise operations and aid business efficiency.
Creating a sustainable building was a key factor in the design of this project. It was imperative for the chosen products to meet the utmost energy efficiency requirements. The Trapezoidal Roof, Micro-Rib and Flat Panels incorporated into this project all achieve an A+ BREEAM rating, significantly reducing building running costs and creating a sustainable space for AST Signs headquarters to operate.
